Trump's medical exam inspires "Girther" Movement.

If ever there was fake news, it has to be what is being reported as Trump's weight. I have officially joined the Girther Movement. No way is Trump's weight 239 lbs. He looks to be 300+ lbs easily. The Salon article showing a picture of his driver's license shows his height as 6' 2" and not 6' 3" as reported, not that the extra fake inch would keep him from being obese. And he had the nerve to fat shame former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, calling her Miss Piggy.

They measured from the top of his hair and not his head. Plus, he's so full of himself that head is bigger than ever. :lol:

As a military retiree, I'm sure Trump didn't pay off this doctor. There would be no need. As Commander-in-Chief, Trump has Dr. Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson's career in his hands. The doctor is a U.S. Navy Rear Admiral appointed to the position of Physician to the President by Obama. When Obama left, the doc was left caught between a rock and a hard place because unlike the lucky Federal Attorneys who were fired, Trump didn't fire the doctor. Even though he is Physician to the President, the doctor is still active duty Navy. If he doesn't want to ruin his Navy career, at least for now, even though he's not a politician, he's got to play Trump politics. This isn't a matter of money in the bank. It's a matter of a man who in 1995 decided to serve the U.S. in one of the most honorable ways possible only to inadvertently get caught up in "The U.S. According to Trump". It's obvious he was told what to say, but he was probably thinking the same thing I was thinking. Trump's years are much more limited than his.

Before anyone suggests it, no, he can't just say "I quit" unless he wants to ruin the rest of his life. For the first time since 1979, this retired enlisted person feels sorry for an officer.



I feel sorry for him also if he has to worry about his career in exchange for being true to his medical oath and his profession. If the doctor did not tell the truth about the medical examination, it means he has decided not to do the honorable thing. I understand your points about protecting his career, etc. but I believe the American people have the right to know if tRump is in good health. Can't we have one person around this man who is willing to be honest? After all we are not living in Nazi controlled Germany. People need to stand up for what is right.

I think I need to clarify what I was trying to say. I didn't say the doctor didn't tell the truth about the medical exam. I don't believe the doctor is lying about the exam he conducted, but he isn't a psychiatrist. The problem with Trump still being in office isn't that this doctor didn't do the honorable thing. The problem is that the U.S. Congress that "We the People" elected refuses to do the honorable thing. We didn't elect that doctor and there is no reason we should expect him to do the job of the people we elected. It is totally unfair to expect one military medical doctor 12 months later to do the job of 535 members of Congress and a good psychiatrist. Trump's physical health isn't what is causing the U.S. problems. If you want at least one person around Trump who is willing to be honest, start with your Senator. A medical doctor who started out to save the lives of U.S. military personnel long before Trump was elected president is not responsible for the lack of action of the US Congress. Congress has the power to impeach. If high blood pressure and obesity was a reason to remove people from their jobs, there wouldn't be much work going on in the U.S. I think this doctor was another pawn but I don't think his exam came anywhere near an exam that would determine Trump's mental state.

Thorns and Roses, I really didn't find the doctor problematic. He covered a lot.
I don't believe dt cares about the military, especially disabled veterans. Glossed over on the news was a story about reducing the current income some disabled veteran's receive. This guy cares about no one but himself. That will never change. To see him at Walter Reed Hospital at all, ticks me off.
